Arsenal sign Mustafi from Valencia

Arsenal have signed German central defender Shkodran Mustafi from Valencia, the London club said on Tuesday.

“He is at the right age,” Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger said of the 24-year-old. “And he has good experience.”

“He is a very focused player who can play with the ball as well. We have taken a great player but have prepared well for the future.”

The central defender arrives at the Premier League outfit after injuries to fellow centre-backs Per Mertesacker and Gabriel and has long been pursued by Wenger.
